    Does anybody know if it would be possible/feasible to change a 7.5' standard ultra mount unit, over to a 8' ultra mount unit? If it is possible, what parts would I need to change, other than the 8' moldboard?


    Thanks

    Change Over

    I would have to say that the cost of doing the change over from a 7.6 standard Ultramount to a 8 foot Pro may bring a tear to your eye, and lighten up your wallet too.
    If you feel you need to go wider try to sell what you have and buy a new plow set up.
    You may want to look into a set of Pro-Wings which would give you an additional two feet of width.

    John,

    I was afraid of that, figured it would be quite costly. :cry:
    Do you sell the Pro Wings and if so, how much? I'm not too far from you.


    Thanks,
    Mike

    I'm not sure if I missed the point but I have an 7'-6"standard blade and a 8' pro (both western) an I can switch either plow on either truck with no problems. I have uni-mount (is that the diff) Also I was told that the ultra mount that I'm getting installed with the 9'-6 vee could pick up and operate any of my other plows with a conversion kit and a wiring splice. :dizzy:

    Yes Mike I do normally keep a set in stock but haven't brought any in as of yet.
    And CENLO Mike wants to switch the "moldboards" from a 7.6 to an 8' which only comes as a Pro, not switch plows between trucks.
